In the study to explore the consumption, perceptions and knowledge of soy among adults with type 2 diabetes by Gobert CP, Duncan AM., posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, researchers found that Soy consumers
were significantly more likely to be vegetarian, lactose intolerant and
avoid cow's milk and significantly less likely to take medications, when
compared to soy non-consumers. There were no significant differences between soy consumers and soy non-consumers in factors related to diabetes management. The prevalence of soy consumption was 19% and the majority of soy was consumed on a weekly basis and most often at breakfast. The three most commonly consumed soy products were soy beverage, tofu and roasted soy nuts and they were purchased most often from the grocery store. Soy consumers were significantly more aware of soy's potential health benefits, compared to soy non-consumers. More than half (63.8%) of soy non-consumers had consumed soy in the past and the top reason for no longer consuming soy was 'dislike taste, texture or appearance'. The most commonly reported barriers to soy consumption were being unsure of how to prepare soy, taste and texture.
